My Top Picks at Daiso’s New Store in U.P. Town Center

Daiso is that one store where I come in looking for one item and end up leaving with a bagful of stuff I didn’t know I needed. I go to Daiso a lot because it’s so therapeutic and I discover so many unique items. Who knew I would need a cactus candle (More on this later)?

Recently, Daiso opened its 60th store in the Philippines, setting roots in U.P. Town Center in Quezon City. The new concept store is redesigned, and takes its inspiration from stores in Japan. Here, the products are front and center, tastefully arranged in a clean, bright, and airy environment.

Daiso is known for selling quality products from Japan starting at P88. The items are categorized by Fashion, Arts and Crafts, Food and Beverages, and Home. In fact, there are 10,000 estimated items in each store, with new additions each month!

I was able to visit the launch of the Daiso store in U.P. Town Center. Check out my top picks below:

  • Hey Koji, I’m a bit of Daiso trash myself haha. I love how they have everything you didn’t know you need.

    On another note, what camera did you use for the photos in this post?
